Welcome to Geriatrics & Aging The Division of Geriatrics & Aging serves as the academic home to geriatricians on faculty at the University of Rochester (UR). The Division, consistently viewed as among the best in the country, embraces several core values. These include an emphasis on leadership training, interdepartmental collaboration, community integration, educational innovation and the melding of medical practice and research. About Us The Division's thirty eight full time faculty span the entire health care continuum including acute, post-acute, and long-term care (nursing home; assisted living; home care). Monroe Community Hospital, Highland Hospital, the Rochester/Canandaigua VA Medical Center, Strong Memorial Hospital, UR Medicine Geriatrics Group (a community based long-term care network), and Visiting Nurse Service Home Care and Hospice comprise the Division's major clinical and teaching sites. Many of the community's geriatric care needs are addressed through innovative outpatient and inpatient programs. Research in the Division encompasses health services, clinical and interdisciplinary training initiatives. The Division has successfully competed for millions of dollars over the past few years representing projects supported by the NIH, VA, HRSA and the John A Hartford Foundation and other sources. Interdepartmental collaboration underpins much of the Division's success, most notably with nursing, psychiatry, psychology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, emergency medicine, neurology, orthopadeics and ophthalmology. The Geriatric Medicine fellowship program prepares trainees for successful careers as clinicians, teachers and investigators.
